Kassena tribe

At the northern part of Ghana, where this tribe lives, i found the most fascinating architecture of Ghana. Wonderfully painted houses with incredible functionality of the dwelling in every small detail. I had also a chance to visit an local soothsayer, an experience am never going to forget. Soothsayers have a special position in social hierarchy of this tribe and as most of other African cultures, they are being considered as one of the most powerful and having a big authority for their skills.

Equipment: Pentax mz-5n, AF28-80/3.5-5.6, AF80-320/4.5-5.6
